The festival within a festival that puts on top class music, stellar shows, beautiful art and delicious foods is back. RCC Fringe has dropped its 2020 program.
Opening on Friday 14 February and running until Sunday 15 March 2020, there’s a huge mix of music, entertainment, shows and ‘chow’ to look into.
LAURIE ANDERSON: ALL THE THINGS I LOST IN THE FLOOD
Legendary performance artist, musician and polymath Laurie Anderson returns to Adelaide for the first time since 2013 with a career-spanning, multimedia retrospective inspired by and based on her recent best-selling book, All the Things I Lost in the Flood.
A Laurie Anderson performance is a thing of rare beauty. Poignant and thought-provoking, funny and reflective, inspiring and inspired, this show enthrals, entrances and entertains. The legend that is Laurie Anderson will be here for two nights only on an exclusive visit to Adelaide.
AMANDA PALMER: THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION
A night of piano, pain and laughter.
The irrepressible, unapologetic former lead singer of The Dresden Dolls launches RCC 2020 with her critically acclaimed one-woman show. Attitudinal. Unmissable. No introduction or further explanation necessary: it’s Amanda Fucking Palmer.
“Sometimes you make the art, and sometimes the art makes you. This record and tour feels more like the latter.” Amanda Palmer
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN + TROPICAL FUCK STORM
Brace yourselves! Experience the Coen brothers’ Texas-noir thriller No Country for Old Men paired with the riotous, mad, psych-rock sounds of Tropical Fuck Storm as they perform their original score live on stage accompanying the film.
The Academy Award-winning film, starring Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Kelly Macdonald and Woody Harrelson as worn individuals living in 1980’s West Texas, follows the merciless killer Anton Chigurh in a violent, poetic and intensely gripping reimagining of Cormac McCarthy’s 2005 novel. It is widely regarded as the Coen brothers’ best film.
Yes! The wait is over! Cult legends and fan favourites Stereolab are back! Formed in 1990 around the songwriting nucleus of Laetitia Sadier and Timothy Gane, Stereolab created an irresistible blend of lounge-pop, punk, tropicalía and political poetry and were the cool outsiders of the Britpop era.
The band decided to take a break in 2009 but now return to Adelaide for the first time in almost two decades. Rejoice!
